    No, the satalitte is still set to launch on June 20th. The rest of the time between then and September is for them to get the D10 in it's proper orbit and test it to make sure everything works right up in space.

    You beat me to it BMoreRavens.

    Well technically they will, just like the SD versions if you get the Sports Pack. Games will be blacked out of course, just like the SD versions.

    There is nothing different with the HD RSNs vs. the SD RSNs. All the same rules apply as to who gets what. Too many people are getting confused by this.

    Would the list where it states FSN Ohio also include FSN Cincinnati? They are similar channels but FSN Ohio doesn't broadcast Reds games on Directv.

    I'm going off the RSN list of what's currently available through DirecTV via spotbeam...

    http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPage.jsp?assetId=2300004

    FSN Cincinnati is not on the list. If there are any errors would someone please let me know.

    DIRECTV Adds New HD Channels for Fall
    Four Discovery HD Channels, Five Starz HD Channels, CNBC and Chiller
    to Join the HD Pack, More on the Way
    HD Version of Disney’s High School Musical 2 to Air Exclusively on DIRECTV
    EL SEGUNDO, Calif.-- DIRECTV, the nation’s leading satellite television service provider, continues to
    set the stage for its unprecedented expansion of HD services. With agreements in place to launch four
    Discovery HD channels, five HD channels from Starz, CNBC and Chiller in HD, along with recently
    completed deals with The History Channel and A&E, DIRECTV is on schedule to roll out up to 100
    national HD channels by year-end to satisfy the appetite of its HD customers, who have doubled over the
    last year.
    “Earlier this year we called 2007 the ‘Year of HD’ and we’re going to deliver on our commitment to offer
    more HD channels than any other multichannel provider,” said Derek Chang, executive vice president,
    Strategy and Development, DIRECTV, Inc. “In addition to the networks we’ve signed to date, we will
    continue to add more HD programming to our launch list between now and year-end. Demand for HD
    continues to grow, and with the dramatic expansion of our capacity this summer and the nationwide reach
    of our service, we are uniquely positioned to lead the industry in the carriage and delivery of HD
    programming.”
    Under the agreement with Discovery Communications, DIRECTV will launch four simulcasts – Discovery
    Channel, TLC, Animal Planet and The Science Channel – and two other channels to be named and
    launched by Discovery at a later date. The HD feeds of the four existing networks will launch in
    September.
    DIRECTV also has an agreement in place with Starz to launch three new HD movie channels: Starz
    Edge, Starz Comedy and Starz Kids & Family, as well as Starz’s East and West coast HD feeds. The new
    Starz HD channels, featuring first-run hit movies, and the Starz East and West HD channels, will also
    launch in September.
    The History Channel and DIRECTV recently announced that DIRECTV will be the first to launch The
    History Channel HD, a new 24-hour HD network, and A&E HD in September.
    As it continues to beef up its HD channel lineup, DIRECTV has also become the platform of choice for the
    debut of exclusive HD programming. Disney Channel is providing DIRECTV the exclusive rights to
    broadcast the premiere HD version of High School Musical 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the global
    sensation for kids and families. DIRECTV will air the movie in HD a few days after its standard-definition
    premiere Friday, August 17 on Disney Channel.
    In addition to the networks listed below, DIRECTV also plans to offer the HD feeds of regional sports
    networks on a nationwide basis this fall, and has commitments from a number of other networks to launch
    their HD simulcasts. They will be added to the lineup for launch by year-end and will be announced at a
    later date.
    To date, DIRECTV has signed agreements or agreements in principle, to launch the following networks.
    • A&E
    • National Geographic
    • Bravo
    • NFL Network
    • Cartoon Network

    events channel and HD feeds from NY- and LA-based broadcast networks ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX (for
    eligible customers). DIRECTV also offers local HD broadcast channels in 60 cities, representing more
    than 70 percent of U.S. TV households.
    DIRECTV’s industry leading lineup of HD sports programming includes up to 10 MLB games a week in
    HD, and DIRECTV plans to offer all MLB games produced in HD beginning with the 2008 season.
    DIRECTV also offers NBA and NHL games in HD, and through its exclusive NFL SUNDAY TICKET™
    Superfan subscription, DIRECTV customers have access to more than 150 NFL games in HD. In total
    DIRECTV offered more than 200 HD games last season, nearly twice as many as cable.
    DIRECTV announced earlier this year that it will have the capacity to launch up to 100 national HD
    channels by the end of 2007, and offer local HD channels in up to 75 markets, following the launch of its
    D10 satellite this summer. The satellite will be operational and new HD services will begin rolling out in
    Q3.
    The DIRECTV 11 satellite will be launched early next year to support further HD expansion. With the two
    satellites, DIRECTV will have the ability to deliver more than 1,500 local HD and digital channels and 150
    national HD channels, in addition to new advanced programming services for customers.

    Interesting thought. If I get MLS Direct Kick and they are showing a game that is originating from Altitude will it be in HD?

    I think that it is doubtfull but it sure would be nice.

    just curious, since I will be upgrading to a HR20 and 5 LNB dish someday.
    Will the new HD channels result in a shortage of HR20s in the fall?
    The supply seems fine now, but what happens when lots of subs want to get the new channels, and need to upgrade?

    I don't know if it will be a shortage but I would guess getting a install appointment will take a while.

    It all depends on your area... There used to be up to a 2 month delay here in Los Angeles. Last week I got my third HR20 in 2 days. Just depends on their stock.

    There will be an increase in demand I suspect in September... If you know you need one go ahead and haggle for it now, have it installed, then deactivated, then reactivate the box in September if you're goona still be using a HR10 or something.

    Doesn't leased equipment have to be returned when deactivated?

    Isn't TNT already available in "HD" .. that is, if you want to call Stretch-O-Vision (tm) HD!

    Add Starz Westerns channel in HD and I'm happy.

    Tell that to the H20 lease that's been sitting in my closet for almost a year deactivated. :D

    They are not really good about taking equipment back... Also, my 1st HR20 was delivered in August 2006, I ran it for about 2 weeks and deactivated that one also until the OTA was activated in December... I just called them to reauthorize the box and it was turned back on in seconds. I wasn't charged the $5.00 mirror charge for three months on that unit.

    If you got the box more then a year ago it should be owned.
